Black Rock University
Fear and Hope…Black Rock University responds to these throughout our curriculum which is based on the Future Studies equation pioneered by Dr. M. Mao in the late 1980s. The symbolic Ivory Tower which stands both literally and figuratively at BRU communicates this idea and its meaning: Hope x Fear = Change – Power + Vacation Time.
The BRU Department of Psychology offers therapeutic mental message and subliminal hope. The Art and Performance Art Departments offers Art Therapy Sessions. The Philosophy Department presents Bliss Studies Workshops in the Think Tank Chill Out Hammock Lounge. The Physics Program gives out snowcones for brain freezing while the Department of Chemistry host a morning coffee exam sans tests. And our Campus Recreation Center includes a Clay Court Tennis Area while everyone fears the incoming balls and hopes for the best. We have a Performance Stage for lectures and improv performance, a Wheel of Hope and Fear that we spin at our afternoon therapy sessions so students and faculty can play and earn grades and Pre-Ride bodypainting.
Further, our University offers a wide variety of fields of learning presented through unqualified but interestingly costumed performers who give away cookie dough and engage others enthusiastically, as if they are from an accredited institution.
Also, there will be cheerleaders. The Fighting Dust Flamingo Cheerleaders to be exact, who will be catting around all week cheering where ever they are not/needed.
Our Scholastic Motto: “Drink, Give Out Cookie Dough and Whatever Else We Want To Do” forms the dictate upon which our Black Rock University exists and thrives. Go BRU!!!URL: http://www.com2020.com/BRUCampPlan2006.JPGHometown: Takoma Park, MD

BurningSky has been providing ‘skydiving’, and ‘observation rides’ since 2001.
We originally began working together as the Sky People in December of 2001.
Our theme is twofold: bringing a third dimension to the art of Black Rock City, and living out the ancient awe of beings in the sky that finds expression in virtually every human culture.
To achieve this vision we are developing objects that will bring color and depth to the sky, planning jumps and ground installations that will allow BRC citizens to experience the aerial view of the city either in person or vicariously, creating costumes and camp art that reflect humanity’s timeless love affair with the heavens and offering ‘observation rides’ to those who wish to join us in sky over the playa.
Do you gape when you see a shiny aluminum streamlined RV on the road; Does the name “Airstream” summon images of retro-coolness and camping at the same time? Please stop by Burnstream Court, the trailer park in the suburbs of Black Rock City, to see Airstreams from every decade since the 50’s and join us for an open-house and a trailer trash freak show/carnival. We even have a “Hood” across the tracks. We’ll be playing daily croquet games. Stop by anytime and visit us. Camp events will be listed on our bulletin board beside our ultra cool neon sign.

Burntown’s promise or warning: Expect it when you least expect it.
Burntown is an eclectic, eccentric, yet somehow concentric collection of individuals from the foothills of Northern California. The core are longtime friends from the town of Auburn; hence the ‘burn’ in Burntown. Some are contractors, school teachers, doctors and healers, and all have their own special creative element they bring to the table.
Our camp on the playa is the culmination, if you will, of preparation, practice and community gatherings that take place year-round. Burntown is not something brought together merely for seven days on the playa. Burntown is a way of life.
Come and experience Burntown for yourself. Our black-free-market (who knows what that means?) economy, interactive art, creative environment and welcoming atmosphere. Bring yourself and contribute, participate and add to the mix.URL: http://burntown.netHometown: Auburn, CA
